BUSTED: SEXTING

Friday, January 29th, 2010
Two teenagers (ages 12 and 13) were handed out heavy felony charges after being caught sending "sexts" (sexy text messages) to one another. In this case, the two were exchanging nude photos of themselves and in result, were charged with child exploitation and possession of child pornography. If convicted, the middle schoolers could be required to register as sex offenders. Um, okay, what?! By this logic, every six-year-old kid who plays doctor with her six-year-old neighbor is worthy of psychological assesment and jail time. We thought these laws were meant to protect children and not be insanely misused to shame teens about their totally natural sexual exploration? Via: The Chicago Tribune
